Educate the whole child and you teach lessons that last a whole lifetime.


The Arts at GUS are expansive.

The school has long enjoyed a reputation as a place where creativity is fostered and children are provided with unlimited opportunities to enhance their creative abilities, whether in the art studio, on the stage, or in the regular academic classroom. From their earliest days at GUS, students take classes in the visual arts, in both vocal and instrumental music, in dance, and in drama. GUS is one of few schools where all students are expected to participate in dance classes. Our hands-on, project oriented curriculum invites students to transfer their creative abilities to the classroom as well.
